http://www.seattlepi.com/comics-and-games/fun/Baby_Blues/2015-05-28/ SPOILER Seems to me that even if you DON'T have kids to save money for, you shouldn't have to feel out of the loop at your workplace just because you don't believe in short-term luxuries like restaurant meals - or deli meals,...

Flat tire repair in a can? by KenK
